La maison is a nice and quiet place, where you can relax in the shared living room and enjoy a little swim in the pool. The rooms are fin and the shower area is great. The breakfast is very nice with the view on the greens. Restaurants are not really around the corner, better to take a taxi. We did... More

Feels just like home. Cozy decor, beautiful, spacious and exclusive rooms. Friendly french staff. Great food (try the ceviche!). Definitely go downstairs for breakfast by the pool. Location in the Gavea hills isn't the best possible, but it is a 5min drive away from all the best restaurants and beaches in Leblon. Rooms do not have TVs - simply perfect... More

Just returned from a 9-day stay at La Maison. The house and staff are amazing. Much better than staying in a hotel. The view of the Christ statue is great too. It really is a great mix of having your own private house yet getting the service of a 5-star hotel. Christian, Julie, and the rest of the staff go... More

A fantastic hotel, with an offering somewhere between luxury b&b and butler-serviced private residence. When you arrive you'll think you've come to someone's home rather than a hotel, with no signage and a closed high white gate - but just ring the buzzer and relax from there on in. The staff are superb, with a friendly, helpful service style -... More

Nice hotel, fantastic breakfast where you can feed banana's to small monkeys, with a very friendly manager. Room was in good condition with nice views, hotel itself has views of Christ the Redeemer and is located near a favela in Gavea where you can take a tour with a local called Paulo, not an official tour and so much more...

This place is faultless! With only 4 rooms it really does feel like you're a guest in someone's beautiful home. Manager Christian is a top guy who, with his attentive team look after their visitors with great respect and first class service.

We have found our home away from home in Rio! Situated in the residential area of Rio, on a steep hillsinde high above Ipanema, with a spellbinding view of the Corcovado, this is a truly authentic, but totally elegant, chic private home, with only five rooms.

Awesome hotel and really made our trip to Rio. We stayed in both the Shanghai & Copacabana rooms, both were well presented and comfortable but the Copacabana room was very special with a view that's out of this world!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
LA MAISON BY DUSSOL: A COSY AND ELEGANT HAVEN THAT YOU WILL SOON CALL HOME La Maison By Dussol is a confidential place nested in the heights of Rio de Janeiro, in the residential and central area of Gavea, only a 10 minutes drive from Ipanema and Leblon. La Maison By Dussol is housed in a beautiful villa fully rebuilt and designed by Francois-Xavier and is emblematic of the signature of By Dussol. This haven features a flamboyant Bohemian style reinvented for the 21th century originally combining different styles, designer furniture and a vintage twist with antiques hunted in Rio de Janeiro. With only 5 rooms La Maison By Dussol offers a peaceful and intimate experience. The gests will find themselves at home. The chic and cosy rooms are in perfect tune with the rest of the hotel. Each room is unique, elegantly outfitted and has its private terrace or balcony. Their decor is inspired by the travelling experience of the Dussol brothers around the world. The themes of the rooms are inspired by 5 different places: India (the Ganesha Room), China (the Shanghai Room), Brazil (the Copacabana Room), France (the Recamier Room) and the United-States (the Tiffany Room). The Copacabana and Recamier Suites, as well as the Tiffany Room take advantage of the spectacular view on the Tijuca Forest and the Christ Redeemer. ... more   less
